GREENDALE, Ind. — Authorities in Greendale said an investigation of a Thursday bank robbery is underway.

The Indiana State Police (ISP) and Greendale Police Department began an investigation after a man robbed the US Bank on Ridge Avenue around 1 p.m.

Police said the suspect showed a handgun and demanded money from the bank teller.

The man left the bank after the teller gave him an undisclosed amount of money.

ISP is describing the suspect as a black male wearing a hat, glasses, fake beard, gloves, and a coat depicting playing cards.

Police believe the man possibly left the area in an orange colored Dodge Charger with a sunroof and rear spoiler.

Information gathered led authorities to believe he may have been traveling to the Indianapolis area.

ISP troopers saw a vehicle matching the description on westbound I-74 approaching Indianapolis shortly after 4:00 p.m.

Officers stopped the vehicle and detained two people who are considered persons of interest pending further investigation.
